English Coastal Gem

Loads to offer. Sandy beaches, stony beaches, cliff walks, loads of seaside walks, good shopping center nearby, easy links to the continent, weather was perfect with blue sky.

A classic Harbour area, with on the far eastern side an area of sand that is very popular with the locals. Right across the middle of the harbour are the very sad remains of the old trainline that I once used back in the 1960s when I took the boat train! Now I am no steam anorak geek but Folkestone...

This place could be absolutely lovely but sadly it's dirty and looks tired. In need of a total revamp . There has been some renovation of the pier and this is a welcome break from the rest of the town.

When we went on a sunny day & was very pleasant to walk round the seaside with small boats were parked. You can go for boating and lot of birds & natural scene to see & enjoy.

Although not huge, everything from bars/eating/sandy beach/walks to the Warren, Sapphire Hoe, Dover all walks along the promenades. Good for fishing. Beware squadrons of the evil eyed gulls waiting. Plenty of accessible other, all just a walk away.

Nice clean beaches, it is a shame that the Coronation Parade is closed. Friendly people on the beach, who will chat.
